Who We Are

Who Is Sojourn Cellars

Based in the town of Sonoma, Sojourn Cellars is a highly acclaimed winery specializing in the production of artisan Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon wines.

We source fruit from celebrated vineyards in both Sonoma and Napa Counties, and we help direct farming operations to assure that our grapes are produced using world-class growing techniques. We consistently produce remarkable wines with a hands-off natural winemaking style that showcases the character and personality of the individual vineyards.

Sojourn feels passionate about creating high-quality wines and always being accessible to the people who buy and enjoy our wines. Sojourn offers seated tastings in a casual, yet sophisticated environment and prides itself on always putting the customer first.

History

The Sojourn Cellars Team

Sojourn Cellars began in 2001 as a collaboration between two tennis buddies who discovered a mutual passion for great wine and the things that tend to go with it – good food and good company. Utilizing Erich’s experience as an Assistant Winemaker at Arrowood Winery, Craig Haserot and Erich Bradley developed a plan to produce distinctive Pinot noir wines complemented by small bottlings of Cabernet Sauvignon from extraordinary vineyard sources. Over the next 10 years, they worked together to develop their shared love of fine wine into a winery that has established a consistent track record of producing highly rated wines under the Sojourn brand. Today, what began as their own personal journey into the world of winemaking has evolved into a first-class boutique winery committed to creating high-quality artisan wines for people who know and appreciate them.

Founded by Craig and Ellen Haserot together with winemaker Erich Bradley, Sojourn Cellars makes wines that reflect a heartfelt commitment to producing carefully handcrafted wines for individuals who appreciate sophistication without pretension. Launched in 2001 with 100 cases of Cabernet Sauvignon, Sojourn remains today a boutique artisan producer of Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon wines sold on allocation to their mailing list members and a select group of restaurants, retailers and distribution partners.

Passion for Wine

The Sojourn Cellars Team

From the vineyard to the tasting room, the Sojourn team strives to produce exceptional wines and make them available to people who feel as passionately as they do about wines that are meticulously produced from California’s finest fruit. Beginning with the selection and management of exceptional vineyard sites, through the application of natural winemaking methods that showcase the character and personality of the fruit, to the welcoming environment of their Tasting Salon, Sojourn Cellars provides the wine enthusiast with a casual, yet luxurious experience of the best wine country has to offer.

Known for their critically acclaimed wines, Sojourn has distinguished itself by offering excellent, high-end products that are also a good value and by delivering their wines to customers through a buying experience that also displays the accessibility, authenticity and care that have become trademarks of their winemaking process.
